Hi everyone.
I have to say myself, Im a fan of and basically, I myself sometimes record my own gaming videos using basic VCR Record while playing. but I was wondering, for such good image quality from the console braught into a computer and stored, how? I saw once something about video recording from this tape box connected to a computer but a normal video tape only has 2 hours at SP (Speed of the recording). Unless using a dvd record which just came out, some speed runs are pretty old on decent systems like the n64. I'm just wondering how you guys do it.

Much thanks,

There's no S...

Most of the console runs were indeed recorded onto a video tape. SP speed is the best, but there's a few that the creator forgot to set the speed and the quality suffers a bit. Of course any run done on a computer, such as PC games and emulator runs don't have this problem. For a good detailed guide about quality in console runs, see Nate's FAQ about it.

Thx lots for Nate's Post on Metroid 2002.
